Orson Welles 1937As part of getting a handle on the Amazon S3 costs, it is finally time to move into the 21st century and eliminate the old-school audio player on MyDesultoryBlog. I attempted to go with an HTML5 player a few years ago, but struggled with using it especially with different browsers. A few years later, everything seems to be working with HTML5 a bit better and so I’m testing this new Compact Audio Plugin because it nearly matches the “look” of the old one I’ve used for over a decade on the blog and will start to convert old pages and posts that contain audio. Below is an Amazon S3 .mp3 audio test using “up-audio-shortcode” as a test.
